17151276 Packing of helices and interactions between residues surrounding the sulfate transporter motif is essential for normal prestin activity.
16873410 Because mammals possess differentiated outer hair cells (OHC), they also benefit from a novel electromotile process, powered by the motor protein, prestin.
16086836 Observational study of genotype prevalence. (HuGE Navigator)
15660259 KCNQ4 phosphorylation via PKA and coupling to a complex that may include prestin can lead to the negative activation and the negative resting potential found in adult outer hair cells.
